Israel serves as a land bridge between three continents: Africa, Asia and Europe.
Its diversified climate – from the alpine Mt. Hermon in the north, to the arid sandy deserts in the south – supports many different habitats, which explains how Israel, with its small area, can play host to more than 500 different types of birds.
The Hula Valley Bird Festival is an initiative of the Israel Ornithological Center. This video was produced by Israel’s Foreign Ministry.
